One angry girlfriend sends three slackers on a wild ride in this over-the-top comedy from director Dome Karukoski. Janne (Jussi Vatanen) lives in a small town in Northern Finland, where jobs are scarce, there isn't much to do and he isn't about to start worrying about such things. Janne spends his abundant free time napping, playing video games and boozing with his similarly un-ambitious pals Raiha (Timo Lavikainen) and Kapo (Jasper Paakkonen), but several weeks after Janne's girlfriend Inari (Pamela Tola) gave him money to buy a new digital conversion box for their television, she discovers he spent the money on alcohol and decides she's had enough. Inari gives Janne an ultimatum -- either he produces a new converter box by morning or he's out of the house and out of her life. Janne sets out on a snowy, bitterly cold night with Raiha and Kapo to find the gadget, and over the course of a long, strange night they cross paths with a band of angry female water polo champions, some Russians trying to chop up a reindeer, vengeful taxi drivers, a sudden snowstorm and other obstacles. Meanwhile, word of Janne's troubles has gotten back to Mikko (Kari Ketonen), Inari's wealthy former boyfriend who sees an opportunity to get back in her good graces. Napapiirin Sankarit (aka Lapland Odyssey) received its North American premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.
